  1. As requested by Mr. Earl, I have updated Hotel Post #34 this morning; and will continue to do so, monthly.
  2. Here are the answers to your questions above. Parking: Cars will be parked by year: 1920-1929; 1930-1939; you get the drift. Registration Letter Confirmations: The first wave/round of letters are expected to be sent out this weekend. Please remember, as above, once Registration is closed, you will get a second Confirmation with your Year/Parking Space/Place assignment.
  3. Vendors and Car Parts: I expect there will be a number of vendor requests for the 2016 event...which so far, there are. Mr. Brian DePouli has worked out an arrangement for you to be able to rent an 8' table @ $20 each for the week; a table cloth for $10. Please make sure you contact Brian, if we can help you with this service. JB

  11. We checked availability at all of the hotels and the Fairfield Inn, Hilton Garden Inn Airport, Residence Inn Airport and Renaissance are the only ones on the list that are sold out or nearly sold out at this time. We are not able to get additional rooms at either the Fairfield or Residence Inn, but are trying to get more rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn and Renaissance. All of the other hotels on the list, with rates starting at $99, are available. The hotels with the largest blocks include the Best Western Plus Lehigh Valley Hotel, the two Holiday Inn properties and the Wingate by Wyndham. We hope this helps! Christopher and Kris

  18. July 6, is the final cutoff date for Registration for the 2016 Celebration. We will close Car Registration, when we reach 1,000 cars; the capacity of the show field. People registration, continues until July 6, as I have stated above. You may leave cars overnight on the Bulgari Property but not all Hotels will have shuttle service. Those that will, is to be determined by Hotel Registration.
